Hello.

I would like to boulder outdoors and I am looking to purchase a bouldering mat.

What do people recommend?

At Rock On today the guy suggested DMM Highball.

Is this any good?

Bye

The DMM highball is a superior mat. If you're just getting one buy a massive one! Check out a company called Snap and Moon also make excellent matts

I have heard of those companies!

I know Urban Rock have the DMM High Ball the cheapest at 145.

I have the Metolius Bailout crash pad. I would recommend it to anyone. Good quality and durable. I have had quite a few falls on it from fairly highball problems without feeling a thing.
Pretty similar dimensions to the highball yet over a kilo lighter and can be found alot cheaper:

Pretty good deal if you ask me.

Great.

Go for it. You wont find a better deal than that. The money you save on buying that over the highball will get you a train fare somewhere to use it! :)

Good Luck.

Even better!

I bought mine on impulse a couple of years ago for 150 from V12 in Llanberis. So this deal is a no-brainer really.

Alpkit have great value quality mats. I have a Mujo which squeezes in the boot of a corsa and is pretty thick- a bit like me really.

both alpkit and pod do really good value mats but if I was in the market for a new mat I would get this one at that price. Brilliant deal

are about the best deal you are likely to find.
My club has 5 of the climb-x mats and one of the pod-sacs ones.
They seem to work very well.

a mate of mine has that mat. it was great for font as it has the foot wipe thing in the middle to get rid of sand and it had a handle on the bottom rather than the side, which made it easy to move about. Looks like a great deal.
